Spinal Health – The Body’s Foundation
We live our lives through our Nervous System – every action, feeling and thought. To connect the brain to the body, the nerves have to pass through the spinal column and exit between these spinal bones. Any malfunction in the spine caused by poor posture, accidents, falls, or damaging work environment can affect the health of the spine causing nerve interference. Researchers agree that nerve interference is the cause of many of the unwanted conditions that people suffer from every day.
This fun and important workshop represents the core mission of our clinic; which is to improve the long-term health of people’s spines and health in general. The focus is on posture – good, bad and how to correct it, ergonomics – the five types of physical stresses on the body, and understanding your spinal health future.
